"He was my big brother" - Cassper

"He was my big brother" - Cassper

Oct 31, 2018, 01:12 PM

During HHP's memorial yesterday his longtime friend and mentee Cassper Nyovest took to the stage to share a few heartfelt words about the man and the relationship they had. A visibly distraught Nyovest tried to hold it down and lighten the mood as he spoke of the man he's referred to as his "big brother" often.



"Jabba used to pay me for every show just to hype him up. That's how I got a source of income. And my biggest dream at that time was to sign to Jabba. And, as he like to put me on the spot, he told me I am not an artist that should be signed, I could be a businessman, as big as Lil Wayne, as Seabelo would always say," he shared while speaking on the roots of their relationship. 


He then went on to share that in fact, Jabba and Seabelo were right, and he eventually reached monumental success. 


"My success was really, really crazy. And we drifted apart..."

He credited the drift to both being very busy as well as various assumptions being made between them. 

"I'm proud to say that I never responded to any of the things that I felt in public because those are the things that would be going up on the internet right now"




Cassper says a fortnight ago they'd run into each other and hashed things out, during which Jabba kept reassuring him that he loves him, and subsequently got him to pray with him. 

"Jabba ene ele motho a rata Modimo, unashamedly so... I will remember him as someone with a lot of wisdom..." 


RIP Jabba.
